The Calvin cycle uses light energy to consume carbon-dioxide
and water; it emits oxygen as a byproduct and produces sugar that
living cells can use. Cells that use ATP as an energy source
convert it back into its precursors so that it is continuously
recycled. Mitochondria in a human cell produces ATP in the
citric-acid cycle discovered by Hans Adolf Krebs.
